Nazli Izmirli

Nazli is our new English/Social Studies teacher and comes to us from the Mountains of BC’s Interior, trading forests for the ocean. After gaining a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a special certification in International Studies, she pursued her Bachelor of Education specializing in Social Studies and ELL- as well as two years of additional study in Indigenous topics and history. She has worn many hats in her time- A teacher, youth care worker, radio talk show host, nationally syndicated News Show Anchor, Bookseller, Artisan Agent, Photographer, Singer, and Film Set Safety Officer. Her energy and enthusiasm for her craft is such that she simply elevates the conversations that go on surrounding school life with and between all members within the school community, students, staff, and parents. She views the art and science of teaching, learning and overall school life as being a vocation rather than merely a job. A consummate professional, Nazli is forever looking for new ways to involve herself in conversations that are truly bigger than herself.
